My daughter's cell phone's isn't much operational at all. Thus, my husband gave to her his just one month acquired cellphone , which is a Nokia with touch screen and keypad. Just a week ago, he came home with a new cell phone. an android one. Now, he is an addict of the games he downloaded from our wifi. At night, he would be beside me , playing on the games, It annoys that he has to put on the sounds. I begged him to shut the sounds off. I would wake up at 12:30 am to pee and he is still awake, playing games! Oh my, i hope he isn't addicted to it. I just hope he is just crazy that he has an Android phone.

The novelty of the new phone will wear off,but I think you should check the box the phone came in..My latest android phone came supplied with a set of earbud headphones to avoid being thumped by people getting annoyed by the sound effects!

Oh yes, it come with that. It's just that he wants me to see what he is playing. And when i already did, he turned the volume off when i requested him too. Yeah, his enthusiasm will wear off in due time.

As long as he was just "Demonstrating" for you and not keeping you awake with the noise!

He doesn't turn on the volume anymore. Like last night he showed to me the newly acquired game and saw it so amusing with the sounds on because it's talking and mimicking what you say. But after i have watched it with him and went on with what i am watching on TV, he turned it down.

Don't worry about your husband, it'll pass out. We have the same situation too. When I got my first android phone, I was addicted to it, especially games. A month later I got bored with my device. I no longer play games nor download any apps. I just used it for texting.

Wow,just a Android cell phone?And your husband will be addicted in it for those boring cell phone games?So I think your husbband really feel boring in his work and life,and tell you the true,if you are a player in PC online game then you will think that the cell phone games just boring and do not interesting at all,I just play the phone games when I am st outside without my laptop. So I think you should really think of some good things and have fun with your husband together.

Well, i understand the feeling that he has now that he has a new phone and an android at that. He has to tinker with his phone so he will get acquainted with its features. Besides, i know that it relaxes him while plays on him phone , beside me in the bed, which i also get to watch once in a while. I am giving him a month or else i will throw it .

Having a new gudget makes someone stay late at night exploring and playing with it.. because of excitement he might have sleepless night..I guess that stage will pass eventually .. but if he doesn't overcome it I think you should tell him that it is not right to stay up late just because of playing games in his fone..

Well, i can understand him, because i was also like that when my phone was new. I had to tinker with it, with a manual , until i learn how to operate it. But with him, he is so fascinated that he could use the WIFI through his phone even laying down, because we have a WIFI at home. I am giving him a month or else, i will throw his phone!

I am glad that your husband likes his android phone. He really can't go wrong by having it. I have the galaxy s3, which is an android phone too, and as far as I am concerned, it is the best phone that I have ever owned. It does all that I need it to do and then some. I can even post in here with it as well. I have as yet to take it to bed and play with it, as I just don't take it into the bedroom with it at night, but I might start doing that, since I don't sleep that well at night,and maybe the phone will help me sleep. I have had other phones before, but I think that android is the best, at least for me it is anyway. Take care, and happy new year.

He is addicted because this is his first experience with android games. The condition seems funny that he plays that games even in midnight. I am sure he will get bore with this stuff soon. This addiction seems temporary.

Yeah, it's his first time to have an android phone, so it caught his fancy. I know that in a month he will get used to it and just use it naturally.

The mobile phone becomes more and more sophisticated as technology advances.People now can use it to be on the internet.I am not sure if the android phone is just the smartphone.Maybe your husband thinks it can make a change playing games on it at present.He will soon weary of it,because it would have his sleep schedule messed up.

I am hoping that he will soon get weary of the games. I don't like it that instead of him and me watching Tv together, he is beside me playing the phone's gammes. Yeah, we will get weary soon, because it makes him sleep late already.

Maybe you can ask him lend the new cellphone to you, then you can play the games with loud noise, he will be annoyed, and then he will understand your thoughts.

Well, i have tried playing the Talking Tom with him on his phone. We kept laughing out loud because he cusses and Talking Tom would mimic and return the cuss! He lessened the volume so i won't be disturbed from Mylotting and watching TV. AT least he is considerate.

That's good sign my friend. Better he is addicted to phone games rather than to a beautiful textmate I am not addicted to any game from phone lately. I want to be relax, when I am home, I sleep early and instead talk to my wife and siblings. I missed all of this when I was in Saudi Arabia. I want to talk to them with different jokes

Nice that your husband bought a new cell phone. Seems he is new to these games area. Not to bother much. Soon he will be out of it. Try to divert him to the other features of the phone like, camera and music. Once you succeed in it, i am sure you will have no annoying sounds of these games. I am also thinking of buying a new cell phone with fully touch operation and with a 6+ mega pixel camera and support of good music. I am not crazy about games. Because, I was once crazy on games on PC - from the days of DOS operating system, these Cell games not fascinates me too much.

I teased him that i don't want to waste my time playing games on my cellphone like him, because it doesn't earn me anything unlike here at Mylot`. He now plays with no sounds, lest i will get annoyed at him again.

That is a good point. Playing games on cell won't fetch him money. hahaha... nice point. Nice to know that now the sound is muted.

Well, he just had the volume on, because he wants me to see what he is playing. And when i did, he turned the sound off. He just wants attention.

i agree with you. he's just trying to explore his phone since it's still new. maybe give him some time to play with his phone.

Yeah, he is indeed. But until now, he is always downloading something on his phone. Sometimes, i take a peek on it. He also realized that some downloads are trials, and he will have to buy them, for him to continue playing with it. He was annoyed. I told him "I told you!" .

Let me assure you that the games in these new smartphones are very addictive and I want you to be fully aware here. You will need to arrest the problem while it is early at this stage or it will be sometime or never at all, before your husband could snap out of it. He needs to rest and staying up late for this will affect his work and most of all his health. You need to talk to him because I don't think I need to elaborate the consequences when he is unable to cope at and with his work. In some cases, could even be life threatening when his job is considered to be highly risky endangering others along with his at the same time when he needs a well rested body to handle them. The other concern, would be some underlying dormant health conditions which will arise once the body is being deprived of the mandatory necessary rest. Our bodies can just take so much beating and stretching it unnecessarily will be asking for more trouble. So, talk to him and knock some senses if you have to, here.

Well, he fully know the consequences , my friend. He can stay up late, because he goes to work in a later schedule. I know what he is feeling since he had this new phone. He will soon wear of it sometime. In fact last night he was annoyed that some games are incomplete because you have to buy them to be able to play them completely.

Well hopefully this is just a new phase that he will be little bit over the top about the games and then will get bored with them soon and not be so obsessed with them. It drives me nuts hearing the music and sounds on a game as well. Unless there is talking you have to hear then to me it should be played either very quietly or silently.

Well, shaggin i fully understand what he is feeling in acquiring that new phone, much less an android one. I know he is fascinated that he can now even lying, download games , music and videos on his phone. Last night, he again showed me his newly downloaded game , A talking Parrot ! We kept laughing about it. Our daughter showed us more things to do with the talking parrot that made us really laugh. Oh well, i know he will get over it soon.

It is more common for people to become addicted to computer games than those on a mobile phone because they are usually quite a basic feature. I have never been attracted to either and have not even bothered to try one for several years. Modern mobiles are very versatile items, although there is a great deal on mine that I would not consider using, which includes email and internet since I prefer to use the computer.

I guess, for my husband he finds it so convenient and handy that he uses his new mobile to view in the internet. He is so comfortable just laying down in our bed , while he uses the WIFI of his phone to view & surf the net.
31 Dec 12
Lol it's amazing.Perhaps u should try to persuade him out of his new cell phone just with patience.I do know the attraction of the android games and sometimes it's hard to put it aside,but,as for an adult,it shouldn't be heavily addicted to that right?

hi friend it is good to that your hubby had a new android mobile. now a days android is the latest mobile technology and it has so many ample features that make every one carving to it. so for the few days it will be high and later it will become normal. same will applies to your hubby also. and one more thing, don't give that android mobile to your children. they may get addicted to that device. there is no harm that your hubby is using it a lot, but if the children got addicted to it means then they won't give up. so be careful friend. thank you

Hi friend, good to hear about your hubby's new smart phone, but sad to know that his playing activity disturbing you, some persons will easily get addicted with this kind of new smart phones at the beginning time, after some time they will come out from the addiction and forget about the games. Don't worry, your hubby will be free from his addiction in the near soon and my wishes for it

Dina He is certainly not disturbing you, he is not a guy any more; but because it is new phone with new features, he might be checking the features in it; i mean kind of excitation.Take it easy.

Yes, professor, i do understand that. But it seems until now, it's his habit to play with his cellphone and surf the net with it , when we are resting in bed after lunch. And since he is like that, i join him after i am done in my laptop, and together we would play Talking Tom on his phone. We would really laugh at the way Tom mimics every word and laugh. It has become at least one of our bonding moments.
